"Scientists are just slowly beginning to understand the broad variety of regulatory levels in genetic modulations besides mere base sequence"
This emerging discovery of mammalian complexity appears both fascinating and challenging to me. Especially alluring about ncRNA research is its vast pharmaceutical potential. I am particularly interested in their role in brown adipose tissue, an organ recently discovered to have a fundamental impact on energy homeostasis in healthy humans. Having experienced such a fast progress in the field of molecular medicine during my university education, I am curious to witness what else is there yet to come.
